Do The Talking: Background music when reading

do-the-talking_20170609201111557

Hi!

Finally, another edition of Do The Talking.
I had three attempts on writing this post. I miserably failed. I’m a damn emotional potato!

Of course, with a crown on my head made of books I’ve yet to read so its weight could remind me of my never ending TBR pile hahahahaha

But nope, I will still talk about Background music when reading, because this topic is pretty close to me, and I think I have rights to share my thoughts on that.

Do The Talking: Why I buy books in Vietnamese when I never read in that language + polyglot problems

do-the-talking_20170609200926793

Hi!

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve had some discussion posts, and, even if I had lots of ideas written down in my book blogging journal, I also had to consider the best time for each topic I have planned.
Actually I should’ve opened this specific topic a lot earlier when I still had some conditions going on, but I thought I’d still share this one while I can discuss it (and tbh I can do it anytime haha). Anyways, let’s jump into it!

Do The Talking: Following the mainstream (Or why I don’t read books I see everywhere at the same time with the world)

do-the-talking_20170407171454995

A.k.a. Why the heck are you not following book trends, Liliana???

Okay, this draft has been staying here unfinished for almost 3 weeks already, and, of course, I could’ve finished it within like, 4 hours, but then, as you probably remember, weather changes hit hard on my health, so I took a break from hardcore brainstorming. But now that I’m back, let’s have another #bookwormproblems discussion!

This time, I will talk about following the mainstream.

Do The Talking: How to deal with a book hangover (and not die from that in misery)

Hi book worms and book dragons! It’s time for a fun rant!

As you know, last week I kept talking and commenting about having a huge book hangover caused by a sequel to a fantasy book by my pen friend, and how I couldn’t pick up the next book to read /currently fighting with original version of Harry Potter series/, so I decided to joke about ways to handle a book hangover. Because you know, sometimes that happens:

Do The Talking: Struggles of an international book blogger (from the country no intl online book store seems to know about >_<)

Hi!
I was thinking about how I should start this post, with a regular adequate text, or with a gif. Heavily inspired by Cait@Paper Fury’s 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Australian Book Bloggers, so I think we can start this way:

angry-inside-out
This is how I feel everytime I think of the meaning of this post

So hi! I’m an international book blogger.

And it all could’ve still been nice, if only I was from any other developed countries, e.g. Europe. But nope, that miracle ain’t happening.

Alert: It’s GIF HEAVY!

Do The Talking: 5 things I can’t help but be anxious about as a new book blogger

Hi! How is your week?

I was just sitting at my office desk, surfing some book bloggers on WordPress, and everytime I noticed the number of their followers, likes, and comments, I couldn’t help myself but ask a question: when will I get my wide audience?

It’s really hard to deny that you’ve never questioned yourself about what you seek with book blogging. Sure, there are a lot of bloggers who just rant about books for themselves, but you can’t go against the nature of lowkey seeking attention. Tell me, how did you feel seeing an orange dot under the wordpress bell sign, informing you of either new comment, like, or follower? Or seeing the same icons on your bookstagram? Feels good, right?

Or when you’re three months into book blogging, you never stop thinking whether you’re ready for an upgrade (whatever upgrade it is, from moving to self-host, to doing something else), or not.

So I thought that I should speak out of my own concerns when I’m currently a newbie book blogger, with only 50 followers on instagram, and less than 30 followers on this blog (as of March 2017, just 1 month in).
